Discover! with Kent County

May 20 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 20, 2017 for Discover! at Hansen Nature Trail at Millennium Park. This free outdoor program for visitors of all ages includes a trail walk with hosted nature stations, a scavenger hunt, live animal presentations, cool giveaways and more! Take a walk on the wild side along the Hansen Nature Trail and “discover” more about:

· Indigenous birds, mammals and pollinators;

· Native and non-native trees and plants;

· Unique ponds and wetlands;

· Local wildflowers and native plants;

· History and lore of the area;

· Reptiles, amphibians and birds of prey through live presentations!

“The Hansen Nature Trail offers an easily accessible, diverse environment unlike any other in the County,” said Roger Sabine, Director of Kent County Parks. “Our goal is to build appreciation of natural ecosystems and the important role Kent County Parks plays in preserving these resources. We also hope the event will encourage visitors to discover other parks in our system, and even apply new knowledge to promote nature in their own back yards.”
